Typically, you can't find this out from the stuff at a local shop, and in
some cases the sellers who occasionally even claim to have a BA in EE, do
not even know what ESR actually means :-(

Best choice is to pay the price for buying from larger distributors from a
catalogue, as they do specify what parameters the components have and
where they come from.
